So my brother had these two little pugs he rescued last year from an animal shelter.  He made a pen for them in the back yard and had them all set up with water and blankets and anything they needed.  He loved those dogs.  They were both crippled because they had been abused - forced to live in crates from the time they were puppies until their bones literally grew deformed due to the cramped positions they had to live in. 

So anyway today he went out to check on them and couldn't find his male pug - and we couldn't figure out how the dog had escaped, but I heard him wail when I walked around to the front yard and I ran around back to find him in the pen holding his dog and crying.  It had rooted its way under the blankets and couldn't get out because it was too crippled.  And so it suffocated in the intense 38C heat. :(  My brother is so depressed he won't eat or talk.  He's going to bury the dog in the morning.  I just hate it when things like this happen *sigh*  I just keep telling myself that the animal is no longer suffering.  At least that's how I try to make myself feel better about it all.  Poor Bailey.
